Lady Liberty Still Stands

Lady Liberty being struck by lightning is a sign alright.  But like the proverbial glass half empty or half full, its symbolism can go either way.

There are those that view this picture taken during a nightmarish storm in NYC last evening as a dark and ominous warning, eerily symbolic of 2020 and the destruction of our democracy.

I prefer to see it through another lens. Despite the severe storm, Lady Liberty survives. Even a bolt of lightning can’t topple her.  Not even Donald Trump.

But it is a message. We are in the fight of our lives for American democracy.

What do you think?


  1. It will be a close one, I fear.
